Its goin a candy root beer brown. I will do a car in candy gold one of these days
I like where this is going. Nice work so far! Watching this one.
Yeah, Pagan Gold over the right base coat looks like Candy Root Beer. Good choice.
Thanks alot farmer12
You and "Hooligan" both building slammed "A's" with similar paint schemes. This is interesting... and cool. I'll have to work you guys out a deal on matching shifter knobs
I got a lokar shifer. what kind of knobs do u have. any push button
Hooligans A is gonna be a bitchin ride
Not much done today but i thought id post a pic of my two babys.
If anyone starts knocking your ride height as "un-traditional" have them look at these photos. I have dozen of poloroids of low slung Model A's & B's at the track & flats, from the late 50's & early 60's, that I need to get scanned. Not too much, that we do today, that hasn't been done before. And, yes, there were even some bagged cars back then.
Those pics would be sweet to have. I like both traditional looking and slammed A's.
Yep, it all comes down to the quality and detail of the build.
Lower cowl metal work
Im finishing up on the rear body line. Got both the corners left then i can move on.
I still have a few spots that need a little attention but for the most part im happy with it.
Today i got the wheel wells made and tacked into place.
Body came off today for blasting, took this pic before we pulled it.
I have a few more places to weld and grind and then the drivers side metal work is complete
The build is looking good man
Hey Hooligan, it was 78 degrees , here on the beach, in sunny California today. Looking forward to winter. My wife just gave me a new Pendelton and I'd like to have a chance to wear it Sorry, just had to give you some crap about your new heater. So who here is painting their coupe "Root Beer" first? Great work both of you guys!
I am jealous, we can trade houses for winter if you really want to experience winter. You won't be sorry, I swear I wish I could live in California but for whatever reason the U.S isn't very friendly about having Canadians come out to live and work permanently. Unless your occupation is in demand. Anyone want to offer me a job and sponsor me?
As for the rootbeer, I picked first, LOL. My car is going to be a two tone brown, with a root beer engine, it doesn't bother me in the least that they may appear similiar in ways when done, at least we don't live on the same block. Drivinford is building a cool car and I'm looking forward to seeing it done.
Sorry to hijack the thread and bring it off topic for a bit, keep up the good work you're doing dude.
The progress is coming along nicely, great metal work!
I was gonna go candy gold but after i saw a candy brown i had to try it. The coupe has alot of work to be done before paint. Im thinkin its gonna be awhile. My coupes gonna be all candy brown with a cream colored firewall.
Keep us posted on ur build hooligan
Looks good. Nice work.. I'll watch this.
